David, as a modest man, does not even try to compete for Rachel's hand. He cannot afford an aristocratic wife. So he gives no indication to Rachel that he is attracted to her and that he is falling in love with her. But his duties as a vicar and her leading role in society mean that they keep meeting each other. Rachel wants David to return her love, and is happy to spend as much time with him as she can. David tries to resist Rachel because he sees no future for them but finds it hard to fight his attraction to her.

In this role reversal from the usual Regency mismatch, the rich artistocratic woman and the poor common man must struggle to discover whether there can be a future for them.
